Amped Wireless Range Extender - Send Wi-Fi to your home's weak spots

My cable modem and WiFi router are on one end of our long house. The signal peters out before it gets to my daughters’ bedrooms, and because they like to do their homework in their rooms, I needed to come up with a way to extend the range. The Amped Wireless SR20000G Range Extender did the trick. I placed it in our dining room and it greatly extended the wireless signal. Setup was trivial and hassle-free. The speed of the data transfer did not noticeably diminish (i.e., my kids don’t complain when they watch Netflix on an iPad). I recommend this quick solution for spreading Wi-Fi around your house. -- Mark Frauenfelder

  1. Fantastic idea, but the price is ridiculous. A quick google search reveals similar devices for $40-$50.

    Also, you’ve got the comments set to Disqus instead of Discourse again.

    1. This is Cool Tools, not Boing Boing.  But yeah, seems a bit steep without an explanation of why one should pay more.

    2. I’m glad you pointed that out.

      A quick Amazon search of “WiFi extender” revealed hundreds of 5-star reviews for a particular $18.89 device.
